Off to das Boot tomorrow and visiting a toy museum along the way.
I’ll not be there to admire the displays, but to discuss giving soem of my childhood toys to the collection. I have two snakes and ladders boards, a Ludo board, my Lindy Lou doll, and Toffee, the Merryweather Cheeky Monkey Bear I have had since I was a day old.
Here he is.
His nose is rather skiwhiff as I used to suck it.
He wouldn’t pass today’s safety requirements. Those beady eyes are on long sharp wires. I’m lucky I survived infancy with my sight intact.
Toffee may well come home again. Not ebcause the museum doesn’t want him. I am just not sure I am old enough to let him go yet.
